Getting enlisted in the Pha Phase 1 army has a lot of responsibilities. The military has some requirements, including a driver’s license and a medical exam. This article discusses some of these requirements and what is required for you to be able to get enlisted.
Driver’s license required
During the past several years, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has issued several regulations to make vehicle licensing as automatic as possible. One of these is the Military CDL I Rule, which allows specific current or former military drivers to transition to a civilian CDL more easily.
This rule was adopted as part of the Military Commercial Driver’s License Act of 2012 and is a part of the FAST Act. It is designed to help veterans obtain an automatic license to operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV). The corresponding regulations are also required by 49 U.S.C. 31311(a)(12)(C). The FMCSA guides the state about the rules and how to implement them. In addition, they will provide sample documents to help SDLAs verify an applicant’s training and testing.
The FMCSA also released a waiver for certain qualified military service members. The disclaimers are intended for at least one year but can be extended. The rule allows qualified military personnel to waive the knowledge and skills tests, eliminating the 14-day waiting period following the completion of the test.
The FMCSA has also added a new paragraph to its regulations, entitled “Knowledge Test Waivers,” that outlines eligibility requirements for a knowledge test waiver. This is the only specific knowledge test waiver intended to reduce qualified veterans’ hurdles to obtaining a non-military driver’s license. Among other things, the new paragraph includes a list of the four military occupations for which it is intended.
Another exemption is for persons under 16 dependent on active-duty military personnel. These persons must be stationed in Georgia for at least nine months of their sixteenth birthday or have a parent’s Military Orders to prove they are on active duty. This requirement may prevent some applicants from being able to receive domicile accommodation.
The AgencyAgency recently granted the newest, two-year exemption. In addition to the Military CDL, I rule, the FMCSA also has an exemption for current and separated service members, which will help to streamline the licensing process for these individuals. However, it is essential to note that this exemption is not for all active duty and veteran service members and does not apply to non-military personnel. This exemption is available only to military service members with the necessary experience and training.
For example, the PATRIOT Launching Station Operator, a vehicle operating specialist, has received Army 88M training and has 62 hours of hands-on activity. He has also received additional training on the car he will be running. He has an Army classification of 14T and has completed the AAMI certification course for heavy-duty specialty vehicles. He is also authorized to use a car with an H endorsement.
Medical readiness requirements for enlistment in the ARNG
Applicants for enlistment in the P.H.A. phase 1 army must meet the medical readiness standards for the rank or grade being requested. These standards must be met to ensure the applicant’s readiness to serve in the United States Army. These requirements include achieving a minimum Armed Forces Qualification Test score on the first five sections and demonstrating body composition standards. The enlistment will be delayed unless an applicant fulfills these requirements. In addition, a minimum of three years of an initial tour of active duty must be completed before a selected applicant will be authorized to take the diagnostic Army Physical Fitness Test.
Applicants under 18 years of age must obtain the consent of a guardian for the medical examination. The test is administered to identify behavioral health concerns and post-traumatic stress disorder. In addition to assessing general trainability, the test serves as a measure of readiness to fill in the Army. The only enlisted soldiers who may take the ASVAB before their 17th birthday are students who have graduated high school.
Recruiting and Retention Leaders must recognize the needs of college and high school students for training seat placement. A minimum of 11 months of I.E.T. quota is available for those enlisting as college students. If the candidate is a high school graduate, they must enroll in a M.O.S. that meets the needs of the Army.
S.D.G.s who desire to ship outside the 90-day ship window will be allowed to during the first five MEPS processing days of each month. However, the shipping window for these enlistees will not be extended.
In addition to the medical readiness requirements for enlistment in the PHA-phase-one Army, all Service members deploying must undergo a series of deployment health screenings called Mental Health Assessments. The assessment results are used to evaluate an individual’s readiness to deploy. Qualified military physicians conduct the assessment. If the results show a significant risk to the Service member’s readiness to serve, the applicant will not be authorized to apply for unit assignment.
Soldiers requesting to transfer must complete a DoD Individual Medical Assessment (I.M.A.) at their local MEPS. In addition to this, Soldiers must have a current DoD P.H.A. If a Soldier’s current P.H.A. is not reflected on the requested documentation, the enlistee must provide a REDD Report. Applicants must also submit a certified copy of the Armed Forces Classification Test Results Memorandum.
The Individual Medical Readiness (I.M.R.) Report from MEDPROS must be printed and not a web-page screen. The I.M.R. must contain the last Physical Health Assessment (P.H.A.) performed within 12 months of the application. A plethora of MRRS is also administered, including 146 Dental examinations for 458 personnel.
During enlistment in the P.H.A. phase-one army, all Soldiers must pass OPAT performance standards for their MOS PDC. OPAT is a four-event fitness test that includes the Standing Long Jump, Seated Power Throw, Interval Aerobic Run, and Strength Deadlift.
